Research interests: 
  • How can insights from the psychology of child development be applied to the design of learning technologies?
  • How can these designs then be best integrated with existing cultures of teaching and learning?
  • In particular, how can computers create distinctive opportunities for more collaborative forms of learning?
  • How do highly networked educational environments re-configure the experience of teaching and learning?
  • How can technology bridge the discontinuities between formal and informal settings for learning?
